This is from a note found in George Eaton's bible referred to by Dr. Samuel Jones in a letter written in 1788 to Joshua Thomas. It seems that they left Wales Aug. 1, 1683 and arrived in Philadelphia Nov. 30, 1683. "John Eaton and wife Joan were of Dolan, Radnorshire, Wales; they came to Pennepack, Philadelphia Co. DE in 1683. John Eaton and his wife Joan moved to the Welsh Tract, Pancader Hundred, New Castle Co. DE in 1712 until their death. He and his wife Joan, are both buried in the Welsh Tract Baptist Church yard at Iron Hill, near Newark, DE."

4  Peter Eaton Rev  			b: 1750
					d: Aug 23, 1817 Eaton's Bapt Ch Cem
Peter was a licensed preacher of the gospel. He lived in New Britain Twp. on the farm now owned by Eugene James, which he sold in 1783 to Ephraim Thomas and moved to Rowan County, North Carolina. The following is an exert from the book -"History of Davie County" - Wall. Speaking of Timber Ridge Meeting House (located at the site of the present Bethlehem Methodist Church) becoming a church...."Timber Ridge became a Baptist Church. The only known pastor was the Reverend Peter Eaton, who began serving the church about 1787; the membership was about thirty-five. In 1799, 1801 and 1802 Timber Ridge asked Eatons Church for "helps." In 1802 a similar request was made to Bear Creek Baptist Church. In 1803-1804 several members transferred their membership to Eatons Baptist Church. In May, 1812, Eaton's church appointed a commission as "... helps in order that Brother Eaton and his former members become reconciled". The church ceased to function in the early 1800's, apparently because of internal dissension and competition from the Methodists and from stronger Baptist congregations at Eatons and Deep Creek Baptist churches."

Other Lines

On Grandpa Odell's side:

Odell's Fathers side:

Foster line represents Odell's Fathers Fathers line.

Owens/Caudle is Odell's Fathers Mothers line (Caudle is her Father). I haven't found much on the Caudles. I did however find bunches on Odell's Fathers Mothers Mothers line (Owens). So even if you are suppose to do the male lines once you get that far back I had to do this one since I had found so much. Hence they are combined. But you see what I mean about getting confusing? LOL

Odell's Mothers side:

Zimmerman is Odell's Mothers Fathers Line. I could call this Zimmerman/Shutt as well. Because the mother of this line (Odell's Mother's Mother) was a Shutt but I haven't found much on her yet so again, I just included what I did have on this one.

On Grandma Ruby's side:

Ruby's Fathers side:

Langston is Ruby's Fathers Fathers line. I haven't found a thing on Rubys Fathers Mothers yet. I'd welcome any help on this one!

Ruby's Mothers side:

Click is Ruby's Mothers Fathers line.

Eaton is Ruby's Mothers Mothers line.
